World Poetry Day 2021

Following springtime beauty, nature and poetic scenes, it is no surprise World Poetry day is round the corner. The UN recognises 21st March as a day for poetry globally, for a worldwide celebration of verse. But you might be thinking, why is poetry so special? The unique ability of poetry to capture the creative spirit of the human mind is commemorated by the UN.

“Poetry reaffirms our common humanity by revealing to us that individuals, everywhere in the world, share the same questions and feelings. Poetry is the mainstay of oral tradition and, over centuries, can communicate the innermost values of diverse cultures.”

The decision for 21st March as World Poetry Day was adopted during UNESCO’s 30th session held in Paris in 1999. One of the main objectives of the Day is to support linguistic diversity through poetic expression and to offer endangered languages the opportunity to be heard within their communities.

The observance of World Poetry Day is also meant to encourage a return to the oral tradition of poetry recitals, to promote the teaching of poetry, to restore a dialogue between poetry and the other arts such as theatre, dance, music and painting, and to support small publishers and create an attractive image of poetry in the media, so that the art of poetry will no longer be considered an outdated form of art, but one which enables society as a whole to regain and assert its identity.

With warm hugs sent your way

Probably best to telephone ahead
To say sorry for what your party antics will do!

As we get older it’s important to keep reaching for the stars
For one thing…
It keeps your boobs off your stomach
